Alabama Political Reporter

Over the weekend, The Alabama Political Reporter’s Josh Moon received several awards at the Alabama Associated Press Media Editor’s Journalism contest.

Moon, and other journalists from across the State, received their awards in Birmingham at a luncheon. Moon received the awards for two pieces he wrote while working at The Montgomery Advertiser.

Moon received first place in “Best Newspaper Investigative Reporting” for his report entitled “Convicted Murderers, Robbers Clean among ASU Students.” He also received second place in the “Best Education Story” category for his story entitled “Gambling and Macon County Schools.”

Moon moved to APR last fall where he now is now an investigative reporter covering politics and news in Alabama. He also writes political columns for APR.

Other APR reporters were not eligible to compete in the contest due to the Alabama Press Association’s eligibility rules, which require news organizations to maintain a print news product.
